Noi Donne

[1944-85 backfile] 1,684 numbers, a few in photocopy (the current subscription is in Current Periodicals). This long run of original issues, though missing some numbers, is a significant source for the history of the women’s rights movement in Italy. Beginning as a bi-weekly journal in 1944, it was edited by women who had been active in anti-Fascist resistance movements associated with the Udi (Unione donne italiane). Our backfile begins with the first years when the publication turned from newspaper to magazine format. Over the years NoiDonne became more integrated with the European women’s rights movement, then gradually extended its scope to attract wider popular appeal. Its frequency changed to weekly in 1948 then to monthly in 1981, though weekly issues and numerous supplements continued to be published at varying intervals. Early issues are extremely hard to find in the original and even microfilm runs rarely go beyond a few years.

Early issues of the journal contain some fascinating graphic images, as seen in the three illustrations included here.  The March 15, 1946, a foglio speciale, celebrates the Italian women’s suffrage movement (in both Italy and France, women could not vote until 1945).  Later issues evolved with the times, combining current Italian style — including fashion — with relentless concern for causes promoted by the journal’s founding organization.   The cover of no. 29 (December 1946) features Miss Italy, Silvana Pampanini, holding the previous issue so that we can see its cover illustration of a recent demonstration for women’s rights.
